Nikon just reported its figures for the third quater of the 2011 fiscal year, and the results are very common to almost all Japanese tech companies. The Thai floods caused a lot of setback to the companies, and, as an impact, it suffered a one-time loss of $143.1 million! Nikon has major factories in the country which were hit by the flood along with Sony who also suffered a similar setback due to the natural disaster. On top of the loses, the floods also caused a delay in the announcement of the release of the elusive D800 DSLR.
Nikon is further down by $157.52 million brining the net loss to $48.57 million. However, at the end of March 2012, the company expects some profits, hoping for an increase in income compared to last year when it made $358.5 million.
